I am currently seeking representation for the manuscripts of my two as-yet unpublished contemporary fiction novels and am writing my third, this time branching out into historical fiction.
The Shadows We Cast
Sarah and Emma are two everyday women, who often don’t see eye to eye.
Sarah at nearly sixty is coming to terms with life after her husband, David, has left her for a much younger woman.
Her daughter Emma is dealing with her father’s infidelity and her own marriage breaking down.
As they each struggle to deal with the changes in their lives and their relationships, life deals them an even crueller blow.
How will they cope and will it heal the rift between them or drive them further apart?
Three women and one man are all booked on the same afternoon to see their doctor.
Erica is in her late fifties and is attending for the results of tests on a breast lump.
Sophie is a nineteen year old studying music at University, seeking the pill.
Lizzie is in her forties and caring for her two young children, one of whom is unwell, and for her mother who has dementia, while her husband works away on the mines.
Jim is a retiree with a tennis injury.
Their paths continue to cross, interweave and intensify in the way that life invariably, but often surprisingly, does.
